Earlier this year, Tecno released a mid-range device with fairly decent specifications for anyone on a budget, Tecno W3. It’s Tecno’s second device running on Android Marshmallow. Tecno W3 packs all the essential features an average person will want in a phone; Android Marshmallow, 3G connectivity, 1GB RAM, rear and front soft flash. But Tecno has released the 4G LTE version of the W3, the only significant difference being the 4G feature, other features are similar to its predecessor, Tecno W3. With the recent roll out of 4G services in Nigeria, Tecno W3 LTE is certainly perfect for people on a budget.

The Tecno W3 LTE presently go for 27-30k in retail stores in Nigeria. The 2500mah battery is certainly weak, especially in Nigeria with our terrible power supply. The display, internal memory and camera are okay, considering it’s price. It has an internal memory of 8GB, leaving 4GB – 5GB for the user.
Around this time last year, this Phone will sell for maximum 15k in Naira, but dollars exchange rate won’t just let us be great!
